Jon Nordling, a MPS/GIS student and Faculty Research Assistant within the Department of Geographical Sciences, was recently interviewed by Esri Education Representative, David DiBiase. Nordling, who was selected as the Esri Development Center (EDC) 2014 Student of the Year, discusses the EDC, how Esri software assists GIS students with their studies, and how such tools can be utilized in ongoing projects (e.g. GEOGLAM). Nordling advocates the use of GIS tools in policy-making – to make a visual impact and influence decision-makers – as a means of solving global problems.
